Plattsburg, Mo
George W. Bryant
Born: 2 November 1853 • Decatur County, Indiana, USA
Died: 8 Jul 1912 • Plattsburg, Clinton County, Missouri, USA
From the book “History of Northwest Missouri, Vol. 2”
“George R. Bryant was born in Plattsburg, March 7, 1881, a son of the late George W. Bryant. His father, who located at Plattsburg in 1878, was well known as an artist and photographer for many years. He (George W.) was born near Greensburg in Decatur County, Indiana, and was of English ancestry. He was married in Missouri in 1877 to Margaretta Robinson, and in 1878 they came to Plattsburg. George W. Bryant died at Plattsburg, July 10, 1912 at the age of 59.”

Active years in Plattsburg, about 1878-1910. He might have been in business in Indiana before that but so far there is no documentation.

Also, his son might have carried on after his death with the same imprints for a period but there is no documentation fot that either.
